Excellent Service, Great Food, Great Pub

We all had excellent food at this bar and the service by Nyi Nyi and Ya was brilliant. Genuinely one of the nicest fish and chips I've ever had. Great place to go to watch sports and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. All round the best Irish pub we've been to in south east Asia!

Our weary heads arrived here the morning after the August full moon party, in a rush to catch a ferry and feeling rough. The staff at the Harp Bar were extremely understanding of our needs. They arranged for our food to be prepared extra quickly, as well as preparing it for takeaway. Not only was the food delicious and exactly... More

This is a great spot to grab a pint or a bite when you get of the ferry or before you leave! Just walk straight on past the people scrambling to get rides and it's at the main corner. Best way to start a vacation! :)

This bar was very kind to us. The owner was very knowledgeable of cider beers and beer in general. We ordered wings and potato wedges, the wings were alright nothing out of this world but still tasteful. We got really smashed and did not get kicked out.

The best place to rent a motorbike on Koh Phangan. Unlike other rental places, they don't charge ridiculously large amounts of money if you bring back the bike with a small scratch. Besides that, the owner is very friendly. When I told him that I had to catch the boat to Surat Thani at 7:15 am on saturday, he offered... More

I recommend this place to Rent a Scooter. Its 200 baht for 24 hours and its a very nice and friendly owner. You give him your passport as a deposit. If you have an accident he will fix it for fair prices with a 30% Discount. We had no problems. Thank you. We would come back.

The dublin burger is quality. Food is nice but if your Irish going for the GAA I don't think they show it. Don't be fooled by the Roscommon jersey on the wall
